Our President, Principals and Staff
|Myron C. Bowling|
April 3, 1952 – August 30, 2021
It is with profound sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of our leader, Myron C. Bowling. Myron founded his company in 1976, with little more than youthful ambition and an innate capacity for hard work. From the beginning, his handshake was his word – and his word was gold. Myron’s integrity, natural charisma, and distinctive auction chant earned him the respect of legions of buyers and business associates.
Under his leadership, Myron Bowling Auctioneers has grown into one of the largest and best-regarded industrial auction companies in North America. Myron took a special interest in mentoring young people, sharing with them all that he had learned after decades in the business. Many of those individuals now sit on the auction and management teams of Myron Bowling Auctioneers and are committed to seeing that his legacy lives on for generations.
